NW NIKE camp report - Jordan Carey

Jordan Carey is a 5-11, 193-pound athlete from Olympia (Wash.) Capital and Carey was one of the top testers at last Saturday's NW NIKE camp in Eugene, Oregon. He tested with the running backs, which unfortunately only allowed Jordan to show off half his game.

"No, I'm going to be playing cornerback too this year," Carey told Dawgman.com after camp. "I play both ways. It was a good camp. There's a lot of good competition out there, that's for sure. It helps you see how you measure up."

Jordan 'measured up' with the best that day, running a 4.43 40, a 3.92 shuttle and jumped 32.6 inches in the vertical leap. Those numbers are as good as any player his size on the entire west coast. But he wasn't there just to test. He was there to learn. "I learned about a lot of running techniques by the speed trainers and a lot of running back drills that will help me out," Carey said.

Offers are slow to come, but Arizona State, Oregon and Washington are the main teams recruiting Jordan the hardest right now. He has filled in the rest of his camping schedule this summer. "I just got back from Arizona State's camp and I'll be at Oregon's on the 16th," he said. "Then I'll be going up to Washington's camp and then our team camp right after that at Oregon State."
